You can try setting mousetraps at the base of your fig tree to catch the critters or try putting a squirrel guard around the trunk of the tree to keep them from climbing up the trunk and accessing the branches of the tree. A squirrel guard or squirrel baffle will only work if the critters cannot jump from a nearby tree onto your fig tree. Make sure the branches of other trees are at least 6' off the ground and 6' away from your fig tree. Hope this helps!
